International Education Week

Thanks to many of you that supported last weeks Leader in Residence program. MacArthur Award winner Lateefah Simon was on campus all week. She visited many classes and led three workshops with students. She also had multiple one-on-one opportunities with student leaders, faculty and staff.

The workshops addressed a wide variety of topics, from what is happening on campus regarding diversity, our Beall Avenue challanges and also what is happening nationally at other schools and the Occupy movement. The Leader in Residence program was one way in which we wanted to continue our conversation on inclusion and social justice. We hope to use the momentum from her visit to move our campus forward. Stay tuned.

This week, Wooster is celebrating International Education Week. Please find some time to come to atleast one of the programs put together by OISA working in collaboration with students, faculty, staff and our community. See our calendar here.
